Metro wrote about the Somerset House Summer Series 2011 :
“The Somerset House Summer Series has certainly been a fun annual fixture since it started in 2001. The 3,000 capacity neo-classical space of The Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court feels uniquely intimate, the acoustics are cool and it’s arguably the most beautiful live music setting in the capital (at previous events here, the crowd atmosphere has been rapturous even when it’s raining).”
